LIVE BLOG: Follow all the action from the Laois Camogie Intermediate and Junior Finals

It is a huge day for Laois Camogie with both the Junior and Intermediate championship finals down for decision.

O’Moore Park is the venue for both games this afternoon with the action underway from 1pm.

The Junior final is up first and sees Camross’s second team take on Portlaoise for championship honours.

The junior competition was introduced a number of years ago and has proven to be a valuable asset in securing more games for players at adult level.

The rise and rise of Portlaoise camogie through the years is something to be marvelled at, while Camross have completed the magnificent feat of getting to an incredible two county finals at adult level in the same year.

For Portlaoise, this is their first year to compete at adult level, and the young club are now entering teams at every age group.

Coming up against Portlaoise in the final are what many would call Titans of Laois camogie – Camross.

Camross struck late to deny Naomh Eamann a place in the final and won on a scoreline of 3-4 to 3-2.

Before this, they saw off Naomh Eamann in the group stages along with The Harps.

That promises to be a close game and so too does the clash between Camross and St Brigid’s in the Intermediate at 3pm.

This year’s intermediate final marks a standout event as it will be the first final St Brigid’s have contested in nine years.

Those with an eye on the Laois club camogie scene will know that St Brigid’s have been building up for this day for a number of years.

In last year’s semi-final, the purple and gold were just pipped by O’Moores by a mere two points, with O’Moores going on to become county champions for 2018.

Camross were defeated by O’Moore’s in that final and they will be hoping to reclaim their crown.
